Re: How to Disable/Enable CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE

Thanks. I can confirm that this still works on Linux Mint 17.3. Surely, this configuration is going to be written to some text configuration file(s), and I wonder where that is.

USB port goes unresponsive

My laptop has 3 USB ports. I'm not sure the exact sequence of events, but after a series of plugging and unplugging devices into them, some, at times, go dead. Thereafter, the port wouldn't recognise any devices plugged into it. Other ports, meanwhile, works as usual. The only way to get that port w...

Session switching while using i3wm

I'm experimenting with i3. My biggest gripe now is that I can't "switch user" from my i3 session to another one, or to let another user use my machine without them accessing mine. I've been told that lightdm has dm-tool which can achieve this from within i3, but I can't find anything with mdm. I tri...

Re: MATE crashes upon launching LibreOffice Calc

MATE crashes upon launching LibreOffice Calc

As subject, as soon as I open a LibreOffice document, the entire desktop session crashes. I've been serially reporting this issue to various forums now: mate forum , Libreoffice bugzilla , LibreOffice QnA site , and finally to GitHub issues page of mate-desktop, from where I was directed here. If an...

Display completely blank until login screen

I installed Mint 17.3 onto a new laptop. All is well, except that the display turns on right at power on, shows the vendor logo and everything; but once boot starts, however, the display goes and stays completely blank (as if it's not powered on) until it gets to the login screen. When it booted the...

Jumping back and forth in xpdf

I'm still in search of a decent PDF reader for Linux, which maintains a jump list so that I can navigate back and forth (I know of acroread; and I don't want to use Okular). The default document reader is decent enough, but appallingly lacks jump list! My next best option is xpdf which can jump back...

Chrome didn't feel any better with hardware acceleration disabled. I'm now trying out Chromium, but there are problems.

Chromium makes gnome-keyring-daemon use 100% CPU

Shortly after Chromium starts up, gnome-keyring-daemon's CPU usage goes up to 100% and won't come down. I'd have to kill the process eventually. The negative side effect is that 'ssh-add -l' from command line reports that it can no more connect to authentication agent. If after I killed the daemon a...

Hard drive appears busy even with enough memory

My laptop runs Mint 17.1 with 2GB RAM and 500 GB HDD. It's mostly smooth and responsive for normal use. But once I've 4 or more tabs open in Chrome, the hard disk start scrapping itself away for no apparent reason. When this happens, I can see that there's about 600MB of RAM still left but it keeps ...

Re: Asus: Fn for toggling trackpad

OK, after some trial and error, I've somewhat isolated the mantra to retain sanity: have touchpad disabled via. Pointing device settings. That way I can toggle touchpad using Fn + F9 key. It's weird!

Re: Asus: Fn for toggling trackpad

FWIW, xinput list-props 12 | grep -i enabled has this

Code: Select all

	Device Enabled (134):	1
And this is regardless of whether I've had it enabled using 'Pointing Devices' check box!

Re: Asus: Fn for toggling trackpad

All of the above do reflect current status of touch pad. For example the synclient output has TouchpadOff value of 1 or 0 depending on whether I have it disabled or enabled, respectively. But I doubt if there's anything that links the Fn key bindings to toggling the hardware :?

Re: Asus: Fn for toggling trackpad

I notice that this works most of the time. But there are times where the touch pad remains in the state it was during last shut down. When this happens, the touch pad no more responds to Fn+F9 key toggling! I don't know what triggers it though. Then I should try my luck by rebooting or go to 'Pointi...

Sometimes it can be as easy as editing grub to include acpi_osi=Linux sudo gedit /etc/default/grub and go to the line that begins with GRUB_CMDLINE and has "quiet splash" and change it to "acpi_osi=Linux quiet splash" Save, exit gedit sudo update-grub and reboot.
